Google has just released Gmail 5.0 with material design and several new features. Google has been busy the last few days pushing new versions of apps like Google Drive 2.1 and Google Wallet 7.0, it seems like now Gmail is the one that has been updated to version 5.0
The new version features Android 5.0 Lollipop‘s material design and has some design features inspired from Google’s new app called Inbox. As far as changes made to the app, the main new feature is exchange support which combines all your inbox’s under one roof. It seems like the Gmail 5.0 update is Google’s little treat for Halloween.
